After much speculation it was finally revealed that the baby lycanthrope is a creation of FX artist Asia Charity Eriksen.

The tiny werewolf replicas are called Werepups and can be purchased online and customized by color, gender, height and weight.

The silicone Werepups range in price from $650 to $1000.

There are even smaller options that are priced as low as $150. Additional add ons like glass eyes, magnets and claws can be purchased at an additional fee to give your pup the most life-like appearance as possible.
